Rules and regulations for visitors

For more complete information, ask at the Park's information centres, where in addition to information leaflets you will find maps, guides and books that will help you to organise your visit.
The park has an extensive network of signposted walking trails. If you follow them, you will be able to visit the most significant spots in the area.
Most of the Natural Park is private property. Try and make sure that your visit does not disturb the people who live here.
Off-site camping or bivac are not allowed. Within the Natural Park, there are several campsites, hotels and hostels where you can spend the night*.
For safety and conservation reasons, lighting fires is strictly prohibited.
The maintenance service has to work very hard to keep the most frequently visited areas clean. Always use the dustbins or take your rubbish away with you.
Catching animals and/or collecting rocks, minerals and plants are not permitted within the Natural Park.
There are some areas in which access is restricted to service personnel and inhabitants, which are very clearly marked. Access in motor vehicles to these areas is prohibited.
The park information centres can provide special authorisation to allow people with mobility problems to enter the restricted access areas in a motor vehicle.


* Duly authorized temporary camps may also be allowed in the case of overnight stays in the case of long distance trips or when they take place in accordance with the legislation on facilities intended for activities with children and young people. In this case, the management team must issue a prior report on the suitability of the chosen location. If the location must have permanent facilities for camps, it must be approved by the Board of Protection. No other type of camping other than those mentioned in the previous points will be admitted to the interior of the Park.
